About as good as it gets in Santa Cruz
I visit Santa Cruz often, and the selection of hotels in this town is not great. That said, Hotel Paradox is the best I have found so far. Its clean, rooms are comfortable enough. and the breakfast in the restaurant is excellent. Negatives are: -service at the front desk and restaurant could be better - It is motel style, so we had to go outside in the freezing cold to get to the lobby, - rooms are very small. If you're visiting SC and you want something better, then you might have to make the drive from Silicon Valley.

Great Hotel in a great spot
The hotel had been modernised to a high standard. The room was sleek and comfortable. The bed was huge and super comfy. The bar, restaurant and pool area were fabulous too. Friendly helpful staff. We did have a bit of a job finding the Hotel entrance though, apparently its easier in the dark when the large Neon sign is lit-up
